  • Awesome week at the lake!

    "My family enjoyed a wonderful week at Whipkins Cove. With 5 children (4 teenagers) it is always difficult finding suitable accommodations and this was amazing. The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms well designed, the kitchen well-equipped, the decks spacious and the indoor gathering spaces were well-suited for games or reading/downtime. The water is beautiful and a very comfortable swimming temperature when we were there. With little boat traffic in front of the cabin we felt like we had the place to ourselves! We enjoyed the kayacks and exploring the waterways. We certainly certainly could have spent our entire time at Whipkins cove but we also enjoyed Grandfather Mountain, Boone, Blowing Rock, ziplining, hiking, and much more... A favorite of our teenage boys was jumping off cliffs at nearby waterfalls (not for the light of heart) and our 7 year old loved going gem mining."

  • Perfect visit

    "Wonderful visit, well kept home (super clean which I loved because I'm somewhat of a germ freak :) owners were super attentive and helpful! They recommended some nearby hiking trails which we thoroughly enjoyed. Close proximity to a private boat dock, so the kids could swim. hot tub was a plus! Would definitely recommend! And I REALLY want to know what they launder the sheets and towels with!!! They smelled amazing!!!!!!!"

  • Family Getaway

    "We had three families come together for our stay at Wautauga. It was exactly what we were hoping for and my first impression was of how clean everything was-spotless! A lot of great evenings on the deck enjoying the uncontested views-simply breathtaking and possibly the best view on the lake! We rented a pontoon for a few days and it was perfect being able to dock right up to the house. Kids had a lot of fun fishing off the pier as well. Some wear and tear on the dock needs to be addressed but nothing that ruined our trip. The only other concern were the bees nesting along the house, which we understand is hard to control midsummer and the manager brought us a few cans of spray same day-no issues. Plenty to do in the area by way of hiking, boating or just relaxing. We loved our stay and appreciate you sharing the home with us for the week. Highly recommended for families!"

  • COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER STAY!!

    "This house met and exceeded all of our expectations. My boyfriend and I, my parents, and his dad all enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this house. The layout of the house was perfect for us. We took the downstairs(master bedroom) and our parents each had a bedroom and bathroom of their own upstairs. This house is great to go to if you want some great quality time, minus the distractions of TV's, cellphones, internet. Yes, this house only had one, small TV, with limited channel selection, no cell phone service, and no WiFi.....and we loved it!!!! I think sometimes people get carried away with everyday "necessities" and they forget what it is like to actually have to have communication with the people they love. We rented this house for Bristol weekend so all of us could stay together and not in separate hotel rooms. The house is about 35-40 minutes from the track, however, it was a very easy drive. We are hoping to make this a yearly trip...and hopefully we will be able to rent this wonderful house again."
